Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

The Oceana should only be a $800 charge and the downside of it is that you have to use the tables and chairs that are in the restaurant which is currently making a seating chart a pain in my bottom! We are getting married there Jan 13,2014 and they have been great so far with all there help. We did a site visit in May when we were in Tulum for a friends wedding.

Browmegan! How are the tables like and seating chart? Do you have pics of it decorated with table cloth etc how many ppl per table? Are they square or round? Sorry for the questions!!! We still are booked at Oceana and I emailed the wedding coordinator to see if we are paying 800 what does that include? What are your colors? Thanks!!

Am pretty confused as to why there is a $1000 fee for the oceans restaurant location and what does that include.....do we still need to get a dance floor/DJ or should we just go to the resort club?

We didn't have a formal cocktail hour. We just had our guests meet at the beach bar. Our reception was on the pool deck and then moved inside to the ballroom when it started raining. I don't know anything about Oceana because that wasn't an option for a reception location when we got married there. 

 

I highly recommend the dance floor and DJ - the dancefloor changed the look of our pictures and reception so much! The DJ even though I was completely satisfied with him still was worth the $$.

I'm not sure if you are talking about my pics or not since it wasn't linked to anything.... But since i posted them recently, it was Anel with adventure photos. 

 

We took all the decorations down with us except the flowers/centerpieces.

Hello Everyone,

 

I had my wedding here back in May and it was great but I wanted to let everyone know that I have recently been hit with credit card fraud.  I used my credit card to pay the wedding partially as well as sign up for the unlimited vacation club, using the same card.  The charges were over $4300 plus the foreign transaction fees my CC charges.  This is unfortunate as i brought my CC because i didn't want to bring that much cash with me to Mexico.  I'm almost certain it had to do with the unlimited vacation club as they had contract/paperwork with the information vs the wedding charges which they swipped the card in front of me.  I have closed the card but wanted to give everyone a heads up.  I also saw on the UVC facebook page another person had credit card fraud at another AMResort, I believe it was a Dreams resort.

this happened to us too! But we only used the card to pay for the wedding - that's it! We opened the card strictly to pay for the wedding (it was a southwest card that we got free miles on and no foreign transaction fee). The only place we EVER used the card was at Dreams so we know it was someone there that stole our #. Luckily the credit card company recognized it and we weren't out any money at all, but it was still a pain. Thanks for putting this out there so everyone could know about it!

What did you pay for the centerpieces?

 

Thanks,

I think they were like $65 each. But we had 2 included because we did the ultimate package. We were able to move the ceremony flower arrangment over to the reception.

Crazy stuff...on top of that the wedding dept charged my cc twice when I initially had them do my wedding deposit on that same card back in 2012.
